Drumroll…..Yes, we have a Location!

The five words we have wanted to say for a long time!

After almost a year of searching, The Mustard Seed Co-op finally has a home and we are one big step closer to making our grocery store a reality. Please join us this Friday at 7pm at The Staircase when the Board will formally announce our location details.  Mustard Seed Location Team volunteers will be on-hand to describe our search, answer questions, and celebrate why this is the best location for our Co-op.  We will have some mock-ups and discuss next steps including financial needs and our pending hiring process.  The party begins at 7:00, with our announcement happening at 8:00pm.

When?  Friday, September 20th 7:00-9:00pm. Announcement at 8:00pm.

Where? The Staircase – 27 Dundurn Street North, one block north of King Street  (wheelchair accessible)

Parking? There is on-site parking behind the building, street parking, and we can use the lots at Chinese Christian Alliance Church and Cathedral of Christ the King – read more here.  Please walk, bike, or take public transit if you can!

Food & drinks? We will have a delicious cake to celebrate – thanks to member-business Cake & Loaf Bakery!  The Staircase offers all sorts of reasonably priced drinks.

This event is free and open to anyone.  If you’ve been waiting to buy your membership until you know the location, you can become a member-owner this Friday night (cash, cheque, and credit card).  Interested in investing?  Bring your chequebook and our Finance Team can talk with you about Impact Investing in the Co-op. Thanks for coming out to celebrate this great news together!
